I'm 19 and have avoided getting my driver's license because of the anxiety I get in cars. I've been in quite a few minor accidents and scary situations so I would rather do just about anything then get in a car. It's even taken a toll on most of my friendships because I hate the car rides to/from whatever we're doing and my anxiety is so high that it ruins my ability to enjoy myself. I know how to drive a car but I can't work up the courage to actually drive into a populated area (I have a permit so it would be perfectly legal). I always have a huge panic attack, pull over sobbing when we get to paved roads and force the person with me to drive us home. I live in an area notorious for bad driving and I've seen too much crazy driving here for me to trust other people on the road. Any advice on how to get over this?
